Art Thursday is a free family program that features fun and educational art activities in SAMFA's Education Studio. Between 3 pm - 6 pm every Thursday, come and go as you please and create art with your family. Our activities change every few weeks!
Family Clay Days are coming back in the Spring of 2024!
Family Clay Day is back! Join us from 10 am -12 pm in SAMFA’s Education Studio to create art together as a family!
Included with the Clay activity, 2 more Fine Art activities will be offered in the studio at this time, with a few special guests sprinkled in.
The First of our Free projects is a Quilted Ceramic Heart, in which you use hand-building skills, lace, and other textures to design your own Quilt-like heart puff, inspired by one of our current exhibits, Microscape. Prehistoric Clay Animals will soon be found in our studio thanks to special guest artist, Ariel Bowman. With her skilled background, she is going to teach us how to make our own Extinct Animals come back to life! Last but certainly not least, we can hear the call of Summer with our special Ceramic Vegetable Rattles! Come roll the beads that will sing inside the Vegetable of your choice and decorate your new produce.
Free Public Lecture by John Schoonover:
Through His Own Lens: The Documentary Photography of Illustrator Frank E. Schoonover.
Through His Own Lens: The Documentary Photography of Illustrator Frank E. Schoonover will be presented by John Schoonover about his grandfather, social documentary photographer and illustrator Frank E. Schoonover, and his influential early 1900’s artwork.
Frank E. Schoonover’s artwork can be viewed, along with paintings by N.C. Wyeth and Howard Pyle, in SAMFA’s current exhibit, N.C. Wyeth and the Golden Age of American Illustration. This intimate selection of works from the collection of Joel and Suzanne Sugg and the Diamond M collection of the Museum of Texas Tech University, features seldom-seen paintings that have shaped our popular imagination. The exhibit will run through March 31, 2024 and is part of SAMFA’s Grand Re-Opening celebration.
